Chris 'Birdman' Andersen really wants to try Brazil's bigger Big Mac

Friday October 10th, 2014

Several NBA teams are overseas at the moment to play preseason games. This can be a great opportunity for players to expand their horizons and take in the local culture. In Berlin, Matt Bonner tried Germany's most popular fast food, a Turkish sandwich. Chris "Birdman" Andersen, in Rio de Janeiro with the Heat, couldn't wait to sample the different items available at Brazilian McDonald's.

"They have the Mega Mac here," Andersen told the Sun-Sentinel. "It's just a Big Mac with four patties."

NBA warns players not to celebrate with 'three goggles' in Brazil

Sure, Brazil's native cuisine is incredibly complex and diverse, but they've got a double Big Mac there! You can't beat that. They've also got the Mega Mac, which has three patties. What a world. 

Unfortunately for Birdman, though, when he went to order it he was told it isn't served until after 6 p.m.
